Parent Workshop

We have an exciting parent workshop  coming up on 3/27  from 6:00pm-7:00pm in the ELES library.   Come learn how screen time effects the brain, what are the current social media trends, and some helpful tips on how to manage technology for your child!  We are inviting 4th  & 5th grade parents only.  A flyer will be coming soon about this seminar.


Box tops and soda tabs needed!

We are collecting box tops and soda pop tops now!  Please send in your box tops and pop tops as you use them so they don’t pile up at home!

Materials Needed, Conferences, Benchmarks

Parents:  Next week we are starting our unit on Force and Motion.  I could use an empty boxes from food wrap, such as foil, plastic wrap, etc.  Please remove the cutting part before sending it in so there are no chances of injury.

I have had a slot open up in my conference schedule if anyone wants to take it!

Reading benchmarks are next week on Thursday and Friday, Feb.  8 and 9.  The math benchmark is scheduled for Feb. 15 and 16.  They will count as a quiz grade.

Conferences are on Feb. 8.  Parents are welcome to use the sign-up genius link below to schedule a conference.



Fraction Centers and Bridge Building

Parents:  Please email me if you can come for our fraction centers tomorrow or our parts of a whole Bridge building on Friday.  I could use a few people to help out from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM.

I could also use a package of styrofoam coffee cups for Friday!

Science test and duct tape needed

Tomorrow is our test on the Earth, Sun, Moon unit – Science 4.8.  Students should study their study guides, their journals, their Sun, Earth, and Moon model and the returned quizzes that are coming home today.

For our bridge building activity on Friday, we will need two rolls of duct tape.  If you are able to send some in, please send it in by Thursday, so I don’t have to go out and buy some!

Word Study and Snow days

We will not have a word study test tomorrow.  Our word study unit has been very disjointed with all the snow interruptions.  We will abandon this word study and start fresh next week!
